  • Care
    Care Information
    Thrives in enriched, loamy, well-drained soil. Space plants 3 ft. apart as groundcover. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Tolerates brief drought, when established. In zones 5 and colder, protect young plants in winter. Fertilize in spring and summer. Prune back by 1/3 annually.
    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).

  • History & Lore
    History:
    Developed out of a 25 year breeding program by Dr. Werner Noack of Noack Rosen, a German rose breeder famous for his commitment to disease- resistant hybrids. Practically maintenance-free yet extremely floriferous and vigorous plants can produce as many as 2000 flowers per year! This series of sterile roses includes six colors -- pink, white, coral, red, yellow and appleblossom -- that produce a limited number of hips making deadheading unnecessary.
    Lore:
    Flower Carpet roses were developed by German breeder Werner Noack in 1990. Werner believed disease resistant roses would free gardeners from the plagues that afflict this favored flower. After 25 years his roses proved so superior they have liberated the rose in America making it easy to grow for expert and novice alike.
